It's time for another book report!

This week, I read Boris Vallejo's Fantasy Art Techniques. It showcases how Vallejo uses and transforms his references into extraordinary figures, and details what he muses on while painting. It is not as dense as I would like in an instructional book, having many images, but is still an excellent read if you are an artist inspired by him.

you're doing well crani and I hope you're rolling in it too for all the work you've put in, but truth is it's less about skill and more how big a following you've got. I'm so jealous man. I've been having trouble getting 1 comm a month when I need 5-6 minimum. I keep raising prices to $30 full pieces and then dropping them back down to 15-20 because otherwise no one is biting. and the whole time I'm making 0 personal pieces, saying yes to any fetish, and having a completely inconsistent track record, which probably also puts people off following or commissioning me. I've done the coom and social media game all wrong and I might just start over. maybe the shortstacks are where it's at for a new account

>> No.6185254

imagine every 10% more you charge you lose 10% of your costumerbase, the trick is to charge the most you can whilst getting your desired amount of commissions.
This also means that if your potential customerbase is huge like yours, you can charge high and still get comms.

The one upside to being thrown out by senpai for being gay (besides not needing to worry about birthdays/holidays) is that i can draw and sell the absolute worst furry porn with zero risk. A guy threatened to dox me for (failing) to get his money back and I straight up gave him the e-mail addresses of various family.

thats cool, tell me something about wheels that most people do not know

>> No.6185605

The oldest wheel was not used for transpoting goods, but rather, as a way to help the crafting of pottery in ancient mesopotamia. Also, looking at the evolution of wheels, you can see that comfort came at the very last (most recent change to wheels, by adding a penumatic chamber and using vulcanized rubber as material). Might seem obvious or irrelevant, but if you ever find yourself world building something, keep in mind things will tend to look very crude/simple/function based unless said item has gone through different iterations

This is true to some degree. I used to post consistently until I realized that nobody was motherfuck'n retweeting my stuff. Essentially just giving away free art to a handful of losers that don't help you grow. I'd know because I'd ask any potential customers how or where they found me. The reality is is that people do not search tags. Browse through comments or scroll through likes. These are things that I don't even do. So why would anybody else do so as well. Granted there might be one bored as person that does it once a year. But usually people will just go to Twitter to search for that one thing to masturbate to before going to bed. And then watch YouTube or some shit. I'd know I do the same. It's only different now because now I can reply back to comments that where never there before I started posting.

Your ability to analyze is a separate skill to your ability to create, and is much easier to train in our society. If you are just sitting down and making, the graph is accurate, but if you also spend time consuming other's art, the graph turns more lopsided.

A few options to consider:
>Learn to dissociate your enjoyment of other's art with the quality of your own, so your overly muscular Critic loses training. While this is more mentally healthy in the short term, you will lose potential skill gain.
>Sit down and start grinding. This will absolutely get your Creative on par with your Critic, but the stress of rapidly upping your precision and workload might not be good for most people.
>Take a break. Go do some fun stuff or chores and come back later. A noisy Critic doesn't hold nearly as much power over the man with a clean house.

Fascinating! Thank you Anon. That theory explains it perfectly and it was an interesting topic to do more research about.
That being said, I don't think it will work for me. Hyperfixation seems like a result of coping with stress: you're doing an pleasurable activity (like drawing) to distract yourself. But in my case drawing IS the main reason of stress, it's painful to draw on this shitty level, to be often unsatisfied with results of my hard work, to hate how my illustrations are coming about and to be scared of disappointing my followers/clients...

I'll have to just keep forcing myself to draw and hope that magically it will turn into a habit.

You just have to shift expectations.
In these cases, I don't sketch the lines (and it shows) and go straight to blocking in.

But if, by some miracle, I reach Jaime/Mullin's level of sketcharoo, I might consider the drawings complete.
I give myself between 30min to one hour tops to make a drawing. If I can't make it look good enough in that timeframe, I know I'm polishing a turd and should do more studies instead.
And yes, I'm a dumbass and need more studies. It shouldn't take me so many strokes to make things readable.
I'll do better when there's less summer.

>> No.6199744

>I know I'm polishing a turd and should do more studies instead.
Aren't you supposed to polish a few turds? How else are you going to ever get past the rough draft stage. If you just practice 30-60min stuff, you'll be good at 30-60min stuff. I'm a shitty beg, but I think turd polishing is a natural stage of development if you actually want to make illustrations at some point. Not saying you're supposed to be just turd polishing, but maybe now and then do that.
Anyway, make lasdiscord again great again; I miss the good old days of people working together and posting their work and competing and stuff, good vibes and art; where are you?

It's sad but I don't think a community where the majority of users are from 4chan is sustainable. That's not to say that there aren't decent folk here it's just that, in my opinion, anonymity turns certain people into demons and that's all it takes to drive good people away.

>> No.6199820

Depends if there's actually something to learn by polishing said turd. If you only end up smearing shit around then there is not much value-adding polish happening there.
It's not like I have never polished a turd, in fact I polished many, sometimes it was worth it to learn some technique, other times I just wasted time for absolutely nothing.

Currently, I just want to become faster at drawing what I have in mind or from refs. I'm a programmer, I ain't got time to draw shit that takes forever.
In the end, isn't smearing colors on a canvas just like playing an instrument? You gotta train by getting the notes right or starting over, if you really want to play a proper melody.

Whew, I sound so wise when I write down these shitposts. Imagine if I spent this time to actually draw and follow my own suggestions, I'd be mogging 99% of /ic/ by now.

Last time I checked Courtier (guy who did those really fun drawing sessions, where people would join and draw together, and after an hour they'd all post their work) quit dadcord because of some drama. After that nobody really replaced his role. For a while everyone was still drawing, but with a much more individualistic feeling to it, not as a group. Soon after even that stopped.

I'm way too autistic to start such a group myself, but I'd be happy to join, especially if it was between 6 am and 1 pm dad.gallery time.

First of all, you're getting mad over things that don't really happen that often.
And secondly it IS useful - knowing why others struggle with improving may give you a hint why you yourself could stop improving, about common pitfalls to look out for and to avoid. How is this knowledge NOT useful??

Some dads that stay all the time in their comfort zone could be a lot of better with a wake up call as well. An anonymous comment could serve that purpose.

The common sense idea of "Motivation" is a myth. What actually happens is that, when the novelty wears off, the Monkey part of your brain goes "Hey! What happened to all the drugs?!?" and stops caring. You cannot build a habit without the monkey.

The cure is to either always reward the monkey for continuing, which might lead to "cheating", or force the monkey to work until it breaks, causing a great deal of yelling and punching along the way.
